I have always prefered Ozzy to Ronnie in Sabbath but this album proved me that Dio was the man to do the job. I still pop it in once in a while

Yep, that's a good start right there. With every passing day I think I love Dio Sabbath just a little bit more -- and I get a little more sad that Ronnie James is no longer of this world. :(

13. Drown (Smashing Pumpkins)



I got this pretty much when it came out. I listened to it quite a bit back then but maybe once a year now. During the 90's grunge was a big part of the music I was in to. As some of the albums lower in my list will show, I really loved a few bands of that grunge era. The music was catchy, angry at times and very grounded. With the exeption of Iron Maiden , metal was less present in my life in favor of grunge. Early 20's I was starting in life, I had left home, going out in bars, meeting girls, life was good ...

Haha! Yes! I also got this album the instant it came out. Alice in Chains's best song AND Pearl Jam's best song, and "Birth Ritual" rocks like a mofo. The Paul Westerberg stuff was really disappointing though. As was the lack of Tad (who had a brief cameo in the film, which was otherwise 100% forgettable).

Dude, I saw a conceptual cover band called Citizen Dick that was a tribute to the Singles soundtrack.

They were awful. Some cool songs on there though, namely Would?

12-08-2010, 08:19 PM
Both good choices. Live Evil helped me to become the huge Sabbath/Dio fan I am now when I bought it like 20 years ago. I played that album to death and it has a very special place with me.

I don't recall owning the 'Singles' soundtrack but it was a very popular album and you couldn't go wrong with putting AIC, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam on a compliation at that time. If you were gonna do a movie about young people in Seatlle in the early 90s those three bands were the best you could pick from.

'Would?' actually was a single off the soundtrack and not off Dirt. The soundtrack came out before Dirt. Just a little fun fact for all you younglings out there.

An ex boyfriend of my sister who was really digging this shit made me discover that record probably the year it came out. I have to admit that I really liked it too. I bought it back then and listened to it pretty often at the time. But not that much since then. I have to admit thought it's still sound really great after all those years. I tried some others punk\rock act like Bad Religion or Green Day but nothing was as good as this record to me

This would definitely be in the running for my favorite record of theirs, and a record that influenced my life.. Self Esteem is one of my favorite songs ever..

I've have this since forever I guess but I don't listen to it that much anymore. A really good psychedelic prog\rock album. Pretty smooth and melancholic as a whole but really inspiring when you're in the good mood .It turned out to be a classic of the genre and certainly King Crimson most famous record. Of course listening to this with something to smoke was mantadory. It still is :stoned:

I have never been a die-hard Motorhead fan but a best-of of this legendary band released in their glory days in ' 84 which covers their first 6 albums is pretty much essential to get my dose of Motörhead when I feel like it. All the classics are there with 4 extra songs (who are now classics too ). I had most of theses songs on 4 track casettes in my youth and it was always welcome in my walkman once in a while. When I have learn that I would see them 3 times in 4 nights with Maiden and Dio in 2003 I have felt the need to officiallise my relation with them by getting this album. By the way I really didn’t like them that much live though: way too much distortion, sound was bad the 3 nights (NYC, Québec city and Montreal) and full of feedbacks. But studio, Motörhead it is dirty, hostile and starved. Just the way I like it …

Beau Dommage is a Québec 70's Peace & Love kind of band, that most of you americans probably never heard of. This is their first album. They weren't there for long (4-5 albums I think). Although I'm not a big fan of the genre, this album was particulary important for me in my late teens\early 20's as I was going out in this Montreal bar were they were covered a lot by local ''chansonnier''. All those songs are now classic in the Québec culture and I still like to play it once in a while

Even if I consider Floyd as my 2 iemme favorite band, I'm not listening them that often like metal bands which are lower in my classification. You need to be in the right mood to listen to Pink Floyd. But when the mood strikes... oooouuuu they are great

Ummagumma, the beginning of Pink Floyd , psychedelic, chaotic, scary at times, brilliant. disc 2 is almost not music for the most part , I never listen to it. I have just put it and I hid under the sofa, I was afraid! But the disk 1 is fucking amazing, 4 progressive classics of the early years. At the Olympic stadium in Montreal in ' 94 they opened the show with Astromomy Domine under purple spots which moved on the giant screen, 22 nd row up in front it was too much for my friend who collapse hahaha and had to be escorted outside the stadium. Great album by a great band... many more to come ...

Got this back the year it came out with all those great grunge bands, groovy, heavy, deranged, lots of emotions. I don't listen that much anymore to those great grunge albums but when I do it's still great music. I dunno if it was drugs or something but with Alice In Chains, STP were strugling with addiction and it reflects in the songs a lot. you have to admit that sometimes life struggles gives you strong emotions and it shows well in this album I find.

The first of many Iron Maiden albums that will make my list.

So with this live album you have 3 of my 4 masterpieces live including the magnificient Paschendale & Dance Of Death. I saw this show twice (in Montreal and Québec city) this album, especially the dvd brings me back right there at Le Colisée & the Bell Center !

Ranimaker & Wildest Dreams are average songs at best in Maiden's catalogue

I actually really liked the mix on that one its one of the best of their live albums IMO. much better than rock in rio. there was something wrong with dave's guitar tone on rock in rio, which wasn't quite so bad on death on the road.

This I got within the first 5 albums I ever had right at the begining when I was 12 years old. I thought that I would have to say that it deserves it's 89 th place because it was such a important record for me back then. It's true but after listening to it in it's entirety for the first time in ages I trully stand by it. A great hard rock album. I saw them once for Hysteria and they pretty much died after that to me but I still love this album a lot.


Cheers !

I could've written the exact same review -- one of the first few albums I bought around age 12, was my favorite record for a good while, I saw them on the Hysteria tour and then shunned them shortly thereafter, except for this record, which is still a guilty pleasure.

The moment I got a hand on this, I loved it right away. From start to finish, there's everything I love about a great metal cd. Speed, time changes that makes you fall off your chair, awesome solos & riffage. Vocals that seems to come from a grave. I still play it once in a while. I don't have any other Carcass album, I assume it's their best ?

I was a big fan of them until 1986' Possessed wich was a bit of a let down from these black metal legends. So from 1986 up until this album in 2006 I was only listening to those first 5 glory years. But when a friend of mine gave me this to listen to I almost felt out of my chair. Back in the classic Venom again, but with some harminies at times and still with this awesome groove. I thought, Fuck Yeah, Venom Is Back !!!

When this came out in 1997 I was fucking blown away by the heavyness of the guitars, this is how Maiden should sound like ... well they came pretty close on a few records afterwards when Brucey and H came back but that is another story... I really liked (and still do) that album. Every musicians is dead on and you go from pure heavyness to more smooth and emotional songs (Man Of Sorrow-Omega) all of witch are brillantly done.If my list would start from 150 instead of 101, Chemical Wedding would be on it too. But this solo offering by the Air Raid Siren is his best imho.

Wow ! I wouldn't go that far but he really does sound fucking amazing, his voice is rich, powerfull and really he doesn't seem to push it too much like on the last few Maiden records. Plus you can feel his anger almost like you would see the drool each side of his mouth.

But what exactly does annoy you so much, this I didn't get ?

Eariler yesterday I had been in a mall reading a book by Joel McIver called "100 Greatest Metal Guitarists." Each guitarist had their rundown and in said rundown was a "moment of genius." Now mind you some of these were pretty spot on, like Max Cavalera's being Slaves of Pain or KK Downing's being his Painkiller solo. Dimebag's "moment of genius?" and I quote. "The Walk riff is deceptively simple, try playing it in time with the beat, it's harder than you think." Eat shit McIver. So yea, after reading that, I guess finding out you got into this album through that song was the straw that broke the camel's back. :eyes:

I remember back in 2000 when I first heard VDOP, even then I thought Walk was the "breather" track. I mean I didn't think it was bad, but sometimes I would skip it to get to Fucking Hostile. I sometimes wonder if Pantera knew that if they put Mouth for War, A New Level, and Fucking Hostile back to back they would have come under fire from complaining parents and civil servants about waves of kids destroying property and furniture in all the major cities, because that 1-2-3 punch would have been absolutely deadly. Instead the mosh party is brought to a screeching halt by this half finished riff that sounds like its being silence bleeped because someone was cursing over it.

Dun du du du dun Fuck! du du du dun Fuck! du du du dun Fuck! du du du dun Fuck! du du du dun Fuck!

Even the drum beat is lightweight, with Vinnie nonchalantly doing a meek 2 hi hat count. And for that matter, what the fuck does the chorus even mean? Respect Walk? They should have just called it Respect but apparently confusing yourself with an Arethra Franklin song is unmetal. Then shouting "what did you say" as if hearing someone call you a faggot under his breath? :wtf:

The one thing that saves the song from being the worst song on the album (other than sharing an album with the forgettable Live In A Hole) is the solo, which I will admit is one of Dime's better moments as a lead player. If McIver had mentioned that as Dimebag's "moment of genius" my reaction still would have been disappointement, but I also would have said "at least he didn't mention that boring ass riff."

Walk is easily one of Pantera's worst songs. I would take 95% of their catalogue over it. Anyone who claims this as their personal favorite needs to have their throat slit.

Addendum: (Wow, now I know how Brad feels about Run To The Hills :lol:)

A) That riff is a moment of genious becuase of how simple it is. It gave that song an identity, and its now two notes that get a crowd going ballistic in almost any possible live setting.

B) You clearly don't understand the lyricaly meaning of the song if you are questiong the chorus lines.

C) Live In A Hole is actually a personal favorite of mine from that album, its so dark, and the lyrics have a personal meaning to me regarding a dear friend of mine.

D) Its at least in the top thrirty of PanterA's major label songs. I would rate it higher than almost all of Reinventing the steel.

1) Give the song an identity? All riffs give songs their identity. What kind of stupid statement is that?

2) The song is about respect for your fellow man and not talking about people behind their backs. "Walk on home boy" is really an afterthought.

4) I will take any song off of RIS over Walk except WGTAFALT, and Yesterday Don't Mean Shit as well as I'll Cast a Shadow are both practically top 10 Pantera.

1) I meant give the song an identity in that it has become so well known because of that riff. Essentially that riff is the songs identity, its why it has become what it has become.

2) Indeed it is, 'Walk on home boy' is essentially a nice way to ring in the outro. No idea why you would even question the lyrics in your original statement if you knew what they meant.

4) I wouldn't, most of reinventing the steel echoes what was going on in the band, they weren't communicating as much or getting along as much so the songs aren't as well constructed or inspired. Revolution Is My Name, Goddam Electric, Yesterday Don't Mean Shit and depending on my mood I'll Cast A Shadow would be contenders for a top ten Pantera though, still Walk is better than the rest of that.

Because I didn't understand why the song was called "Walk" as opposed to "Respect" It's like they just threw in a random third syllable. There is really no sane way to tie the song lyrically to "walk" or "walking."

There is, its voiced as the last lyric in the song, 'walk on home boy', as in walk away.. The whole song lyrically is essentially someone turning to another person and saying 'I know what you've said about me, you'd better walk away from this and learn to respect me'.. Plus, calling it walk makes it more unique as a song title, as you said in your original post, there is already a song called respect..

well, I'm glad this thread gives us a bit of passion over songs or albums. I for one think that Dextrimental has a valid point over the Walk riff. It gave it all it needed to become what it becomes. And it's one of the most know Pantera riff ever. I never had the chance of seiing Pantera live, but by jugging the crowd reaction on the live 101 Proof thing, it's clear that the crowd was going nuts over this song. When I saw Damage Plan in 2004 the finished the show with it and it was obviously the most appreciated songs in their set. But imho it's really not the best song on the album, there is a handfull of songs that I like better...



...moving on to the next album on the list...

IMHO the most underrated Ozzy release. It is beter than everything he ever done solo with exception of the timeless Blizzard Of Ozz. I saw that show in 1986 in Montreal (I even shook Jake E. Lee's hand outside before the show)and it was magic. Ozzy was still scary back then, not the clown he his now. This album is flawless, the sound is rich and Ozzy's voice is great. I have listen to this a lot in the 80's , I should put it more...

I've got news for you 'Walk' was the first big single off the album and it was the song that got a lot of people, myself included, into Pantera. Handbangers Ball played that video a ton. So it's not just PowerMaiden who became a fan because of this song. Pantera's fanbase was largely made on this track.

Please know your history before going off like that and getting angry about 'Walk' being the song that got somebody into the band. Without 'Walk' Pantera would not have become what they did. What 'Breaking The Law' is to Priest is what 'Walk' is to Pantera.

The first 3 albums of PJ are all classics in my opinion. For their 3 rd album, spite, groove, intensity, passion was there as always also the softer side was also not forgotten. This album is the continuity of the first 2.They even allowed temselves to go to certains era where they hadn’t been before, to the punkier side (Spin The Black Circle) to the crazyness of Bugs or the last track to the almost divine one ( Immortallity), Vitalogy demonstrates well all the potential that this group had in this state of their carrer. Eddie Vedder has a sublime voice, absolutely poignant and intense as rarely heard by me. He delivers his text with such a fury (Not For You) and such an emotion that I immediately was ammaze by him and the band. This album also contains all the ingredients which made the classic Pearl Jam sound from their origin . A great record …

I saw Pearl Jam 3 times in concert and if was not because they took a bend too much smooth and less furious after Binaural I would have continue to follow them. I don’t really know what happened with them after Riot Act (2002) but from what I heard playing on the radio it didn’t seem as groovy as it was. Too mellow I think. Still a great band that highly changed me , expect the first 2 albums somewhere down my list.

I didn't know shit about nothing. A great album that I should listen to more often. I would say it's probably the one out of the first 7 that I listen the less. That doesn't mean there's anything wrong with it. Paul was perfect for it at the time and the band is on fire, with a little punk edge.

CHILDREN OF BODOM – Are You Dead Yet ?


Ok, after 2 full days of almost non-stop Are You Dead Yet ? at work (thanks to my buddy Maiden2K & Desros that somehow managed to get a hand on the new cd). Time for my review…

First off all I have to tell you that I’m fucking hook on theses guys for a while now & you don’t have to worry about me buying it on Oct 25 th, these guys deserves my money. Hate Crew Deathroll being number 7 at my all time album ranking. Hatebreeder at number 21, and Follow The Reaper & Something Wild beiing regulary played in my living room. So, the new Are You Dead Yet ? was highly expected and it was with great thrill that I put this cd in to me sound system carrousel…as well as many listen this weekend at work.

Before I start, I would like to make a small comment : I know most of people see a big difference between the early stuff and Hate Crew Deathroll, I do too, but not that much, I just love every era of the band, and for me Hate Crew Deathroll is nothing less than a masterpiece. I don’t try to compare it too much with previous work, I just apprecciate it the way it is. And for me, it’s really ‘’Something Wild’’ that is really different from the others, the songs are really chaotic in this one with the exeption of ‘’ In The Shadows’’, ‘’Lake Bodom’’ and ‘’Touch Like Angels Of Death’’ (my 3 favourite songs of the album) the rest is pretty underground and different music to me,
It’s good but so weird & different that it took me a while to get into some of the songs, (the keyboard sounding like one from a church a times and the really chaotic structure of some of the songs). Anyway…


… that’s the way I have approched the new cd, I just listened to the songs without too much thinking of their past efforts. Where would it stands amongst C.O.B. ‘s previous records, I’ll try to let you know after the review…


Here we go :


1. Living Dead Beat

This song opens with an almost electro synth section that totally defies what the band have done before, but it doesn’t last too long before we jump into total Bodom frenzy riffs and mood. With that ‘’Wildchild’’ vocals and guitar shred, Janne’s amazing and unique keyboard playing, the rhythm section of Henkka Blacksmith (bass) & drummer Jaska Raatikainen is still preserved intact. Personnally I don’t see any diffence between the guitar playing of Roope Latvala & Alexander Kuoppala their previous guitar player. Speaking of the shredding guitars (so caracteristic of C.O.B.’s sound) it’s well used in this song. Amazing riffs & rhythm for this song opener. Alexi’s voice is same as on HCDR (not as growly as first couple of albums) . Personnaly I slightly prefer it that way, althought I absolutely loved everything about Hatebreeder. This song as the focus on some sort of a catchy vocal parts rather than on the guitars, althought the guitars are very well played and still present. Since it’s still ‘’Wildchild’’ on vocals, and my primilary language is french, I can’t understand really well what’s he saying, but even for an english speaking person, I doubt you would heard the exact lyrics hehehe… but it sounds good ! There’s also an amazing instrumental part towards the end of the song, wow !! Fucking great headbang thrash part, great riffs & shred well mixed with Janne’s 2 keyboard solo’s. Solid opener ! 8.5/10



2. Are You Dead Yet ?

Oufff !!!, I Mean WOW !!! What a thrashy start for the album title track, headbang mode right from the start !! After that speedy \ thrashy crazy intro, a time change (slow and beautifully heavy) with drum beat cut with high guitar notes that works just perfectly. But it’s the main riff of the song that is sooooo amazing, with great lead guitar breaks into it sometimes. The band sings the ‘’Are You Dead Yet ?’’ all together, and it’s not long before you want to scream it with them. Not too complicated as a song but it doesn’t have to be all so complex all the time, it’s just AN AMAZING SONG the way it is. . Damn !! Those exchange of solo’s are fucking great too !!! And that riff is addictive, goosebumps all over for me, that’s what COB s all about. Shivers down the spine really. No keyboard solo in this one but nevertheless, impossible not to love it, this one will surely become a crowd favorite in the upcoming live concerts. 10/10



3. If You Want Peace… Prepare For War

Once again a great thrashy riff, right from the get go, more complex and different from any structure they’ve done before, doesn’t sound like COB at all, but these guys knows our to work those instruments and soon the beauty of COB trademark will appear with the keyboard harmonies working perfectly. Now, be aware of your neck and your brain too as it’s almost impossible not to heandbang heavily in this one as Alexi screams along with the rhythm of the song. Really a great headbanger !! and then amazing guitar solo’s . Don’t know if there’s one from Roope, probably. And some great guitar hooks on the way too. This song is really really brutal and reminds me of the HCDR material, therefore it’s great ! 9.5/10




4. Punch Me I Bleed

Now, welcome to Pantera land with this song, the intro is an almost exact replica of "Hard Lines, Sunken Cheeks" with a followup riff that reminds me a lot of ‘’5 Minutes Alone’’. Pretty different and unique for C.O.B. again, like ‘’Angels Don’t Kill’’ did for the Hate Crew Deathroll cd, ‘’Punch Me I Bleed’’ is very slow with heavy riffs supported by Janne’s keyboards melody. But somehow I find it more emotionnal and deep than ADK. Too bad I cannot hear what’s Alexi is singing in the chorus. Something like ‘’ Falling Down I Was…???….In To The Obscurity’’ anyway, really really good and poignant. I don’t know if it’s somehow dedicated to Dimebag ?? The little keyboards touch by Janne throughout the song is just fucking perfect. There also are plenty of good guitar hooks everywhere just like ADK. Solo’s (keyboards & guitars) are great. But it’s just the atmosphere of the song, really like a sad, desperate mood in this song. Brillant !!! 9.5/10



5. In Your Face

Again we start with a scorching guitar intro, soon suported by a great keyboard harmony. And after it’s total thrash chaos; COB style !!!… Too bad Alexi is coming again with his “I don’t give a flying fuck motherfucker!” on most of the main rhythm. Really, how much more of these crapy lyrics will we have to endure down the road. But at least musically the song is a dandy. The keyboard job by Jan playing over the rhythm section is really good. But this chorus is really bizarre to me. Not that it’s not good, hell no !! But it doesn’t fit COB that well, you’ll see what I mean when you’ll hear it too. ‘’It’s My World, You’re in It… …I’ll Take You Down In A Minute’’ the rhythm, the keyboard support is bloody good, but weird for COB, almost as if they tried to break it commercial (in their own style of course, I don’t see COB turning commercial). Maybe that’s it, it’s their atempt to get new metal fans with a really catchy chorus. Since it’s the current single, that’s possible I guess. That beiing said. I can’t say it’s a bad song. It deserve an easy 8/10




6. Next In Line


Oooups !!! Ok, the music is okay at best, but the time change from speedy thrash metal to a slow boring part is a complete dissaster, there’s a good moshy part at one point but this song is too repetitive and plain to be consider a live choice by the band for the upcoming tour. A filler 5/10




7. Bastards Of Bodom

Like every Children Of Bodom album so far, We need a Bodom related title, this time it’s the ‘’Bastards Of Bodom’’ musicaly it’s a really fucking badass song, plenty of good old Bodom style guitar hooks and melodies mixed with thrashy parts supported by amazing keyboard harmonies and solos. This song could easily have been on ‘’Hatebreeder’’ even Alexi’s voice is a little more angry it seems hehehe… anyway, if you wanted a more ‘’Hatebreeder’’ oriented album, at least you have this song. It’s fast, it’s furious, what else can we ask for !?! 9/10


8. Trashed, Lost & Strung Out


This one, most of the hard core Bodom fans have already heard it since the single for this song is out for a while now. Great song, I’m anxious to see the mosh pit comes alive at Le Medley in Montreal on Nov 10 th if they play it. You know during the Sepulturalish moshing part where it’s like everything stops and it’s just a pure rhythm headbang party !!! Great song ! 8.5/10



9. We’re Not Gonna Fall


The album closer is imho an atempt to re-create the magic of the previous record last song with the masterpiece song ‘’ Hate Crew Deathroll’’. I’m saying that because you’ve got the same kind of mood, guitar hooks, even the ‘’HEY !!’’ screamed by all the band members. But it fall short of course. HCDR (the song) for me is almost impossible to match, I mean how can you come nowhere near the brutality, the surgical preciseness and angry mood of HCDR. Now, back to this ‘’We’re Not Gonna Fall’’ song, It’s not bad, especially both the guitars and keyboards exchange of solos near the end. But there it isn’t really a stand out track for this album 7/10





So at the end, you have a fucking great Children Of Dodom new cd. Not better than ‘’Hatebreeder’’ and certainly far from ‘’Hate Crew Deathroll’’ but still a great record. I would place it a bit better than ‘’Follow The Reaper’’ with the difference that FTR as 2 fucking masterpieces songs ‘’Everytime I Die’’ and ‘’Hate Me !’’ as for ‘’Are We Dead Yet’’ you have maybe the title track that can be consider such a song, and imho it’s not better than ‘’Everytime I Die’’ nor ‘’ Hate Me !’’ But the record is more constant than FTR a bit like comparing Slayer’s ‘’ God Hates Us All’’ (more constant and equal) with ‘’South Of Heaven’’ (more great songs). That’s my taste anyways and it still can change, songs like PMIB or IYWPPFW are really, really strong.

But ‘’Hatebreeder’’ and ‘’Hate Crew Deathroll’’ to me, are untouchable, and I’m not sure if they will ever come close as these 2 records. That said, ‘’Are You Dead Yet ?’’ will certainly continue to grow on me. Any Bodom fans will agree that It Delivers !!! That’s for sure, Children Of Bodom is here to stay !!!

So for the record my ratings gives me a 75/90 or 83.3 % (voted 8/10)

And I went to check back my old scores for previous records, to place ARDY among them, I gaved

1. Hate Crew deathroll 10/10
2. Hatebreeder 9/10
3. Are You Dead Yet ? 8.3/10
3. Follow The Reaper 8/10
4. Something Wild 7/10




I would certainly give In Your Face a 10/10 right now as it became probably one of my top 5 COB songs.

All of their classics are there and even though I don’t listen to the album in full that much. It is a real pleasure to me when I do.

I had the double vinyl back in the 80's but for this listen the cd will have to do. It's a shame though because the sound was so rich and thick on vinyl but it's still well preserved on the cd.

I must have been at least 15 years since I have last listened to this in full. This album is their Live After Death so to speak. Recorded in Paris in front of 8000 rabid fans on november 29 th 1979 this legendary band doesn't dissapoint one bit. All the classic are there including the magnificient Fool's Overture (remember they use the Churchill's Speech ahead of Maiden) and a wonderfull version of Hide In Your Shell, but really every song is a fucking bomb.


There's more though, the band are all on their A game on their instrument and Rick et Roger voices are clear, dense really magnificient. The cd version after all is really good, it's like we are there. The coolest thing if it wasn't enought is that they play 7 of the 8 songs of Crime Of A Century. I obviously don't listen to it enought and I didn't remember it was that good, should have been a little lower on my list ( around the 65 th spot I would say). A masterpiece of the Genre

Just like the precedent album on my list this is a real live threat, What Led Zeppelin was live in their glory days. The power of John Bonham, the devilish Jimmy Page’s riffs. The beautifull but sometimes almost scary vocals of Robert Plant (when he screams like a women who has an orgasm on Dazed & Confuzed, ouf, scary). It’s this song, Dazed & Confuzed, who really freaked me out, how can you do a 6 minutes studio song and make it last 20 more minutes live without hurting it one bit. Incredible rendition, just magic, amazing. No Quarter is also fucking mind blowing. Jimmy’s riff comes and scratches your nervous system beautifully.

The only bad thing about this album is the ommition of some of my favourite Zep songs (When The Levee Breaks, Kashmir and Achilles Last Stand comes to mind, althought I’m not sure if Presence was release during the recording of this album, both of them were release in 1976) anyway, when the average song on the album last well over 10 minutes, how many can you do in one night\album ? Masterpiece !

The album was released in 76, but the tour was 73. Kashmire wasn't even written then. Though When The Levee Breaks would have been pretty awesome.

1982, March saw the passing of late Randy Roads. Ozzy is devastated and stoned\drunk for 15 years now.

Plus his old band, Black Sabbath plans to release a live album with Dio. War !! no way Ozzy will let that go without a fight so he recruits almost the first guitar player he comes accross (Brad Gillis of Night Ranger) and plans 2 shows in New York with a setlist of only Sabbath classics. He plans to record the show to piss off Tony and Geezer by taking out a live album at the same time hahaha!

All this last minute set up, which was writen disaster all over, turn up beautifully, to the surprise of everyone, a miracle occurs. A flawless show with an thunderous atmosphere ! It is the real Ozzy Osbourne ! The dangerous one, the one parents were afraid of... that is capture on this album. You can almost smells his alcohol breath, and you can almost see his 2 red eyeballs. He is fucking furious, A real Madman ! He screams at the crowd throughout the whole concert, often we hear him scream without his mic. " Is Everybody high ?", " Let’s Have A Riot!!! ".. Needless to say the songs selection is timeless classics only and Ozzy's voice is amazing. The musicians are all good, of course we’re missing the Sabbath edge on this, but this album is not to be listen with that in mind. Ozzy is the star on this one. That was my Ozzy, the real Ozzy.

A massive work of art, pure creative genius, whether it's the album, the movie, or the show that I had the happiness to see in 2010 done by Roger, simply brilliant. Back in the mid 80's it is Another Brick In The Wall part 2 who got me into Pink Floyd and made me bought this album.y. But after the purchase of this album I was transformed for life. An music for the senses which investigates the human being under all it's sides. You can just sit down, and relax throughout the whole thing. It was really a major discovery for me back then. I was only interested in heavy metal and I had never thought of opening myself to anything else, but this album (and maybe a few other things :stoned: )changed everything :p

This concept album, contains maybe 10 really main songs (In The Flesh-Another Brick In The Wall pt2-Mother-Goodbye Blue Sky-Young Lust-Hey You-Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell who are all rellated with these psychelic\fucked up\cool interlludes. It is so fucking brilliant. Impossible for me not to still fly high even now 25 years later. Just like right now, I have my eyes closed, a hot tea,my feet up and the sun heat my face... hapiness...

I saw Roger Waters perform "The Wall" in it's entirety last year. It was easily the greatest concert of my life. Pretty much beat any show I went to in 2010:rocker:

Hearing Roger perform "Mother" in front of my face is something I will always hold dearly in my heart :hmm:

The only thing I hated about the show was that it ended :(

As much as I loved it too (The Wall done by Roger last year) it was the lesser good concert out of the 4 times I saw him. It was great but way too short. at 300 $ per ticket he could have do a 30 minutes encore and I would have been happy. Because all in all the show was roughly 2 X 45 minutes. Usually he plays well over 2 hours. But still, I'm happy I saw that

I got this not long after it came out mainly because I had most of these songs on casettes and when I switched to cd I needed this. All great songs from the Scorps in the 80's. Especially Still Loving You which played a lot in my teens with girlfriends I had back then... It still gives me goosebumps today. The best power ballad ever imho. The rest of the cd is top notch too. You can't go wrong with a best of the Scorpions in the 80's and this is what this cd is. Never been a big fan of them enough for following them that much. I wanted to see them at least once in my life. That was accomplished on june 29 th, 1994 and they did not impress me at all. In fact it's one of my most dissapointing show I've been to. They didn't even play No One Like You !?. But nevertheless this is a great cd and I still pop one song from it once in while.

I only started to follow Slayer seriously at the corner of the century, in 2000. Before that, especially in the 80's they were way to scary for me.All you could hear about them is that they were satanist, there was riots at every show, you knew they weren't it it just for fun. I knew pretty much every major songs they had made in the 80's without having any albums. I had maybe their 20 bests songs or most known songs on casettes and that was enought for me. On Reign In Blood I knew RB, Postmortem and Angel Of Death

But when I decided to be a man a go see them for GHUA in 2001, I saw the light (of darkness :p ) after that show I had to get a hand on everything they had done.

I had heard that this album was groundbreaking in terms of aggressivity & speed and right from the get go I had to acknowledge. A pure fucking storm from start to finish made wich such precision that even a dental surgeon would come short to accomplish. Beautyfull. Althought not my favourite album by the mighty Slayer it really deserves it's place on my list as it's such unique. They must have said , let's push everything at the maximum level and it worked !

Long live Slaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeer !!!!

Most of you will agree with me that this is probably the most important album in history for us, the metalheads. Right from the opening guitar notes of Tony Iommy we immediatly realise that this is no ordinary album. It's dark, gloomy, heavy and powerfull, with Ozzy's superb voice that fits perfectly this evil music, a revolutionnary music was born. Not that complicated really, but so fucking effe3ctive. I had the casette when I was younger and damn I listened to it a lot. Every song on this album is majestic and I was so happy in the summer of '99 to have witnessed the grand reunion of the Sab 4. I was hopping for the Warning meddley but they only gave us NIB and the title track, obviously both of them were beyond awesome. This is the first heavy metal album, and a damn good one

I've got this since forever. Definately less metal than Black Sabbath but as groovy and intense. Again you can't go wrong with a Deep Purple best of but here I had to make a hard choice: On this cd I have Burn and Stormbringer with David Coverdale on vocals (not that there's anything wrong with that but I prefer Ian Gillan by a lot) and those 2 songs are fucking good. On my other DP best of it include songs from 1984 Perfect Strangers (the title track & Knocking At Your Back Door are 2 personnal favourites) the choice was tough. I decided to go with this one since the other one doesn't have Strange Kind Of Woman nor Woman From Tokyo.

Deep Purple, with Ian Gillan on vocals, probably the best hard rock singer of it's time, Ritchie Blackmore a revolutionary guitar player. Roger Glover on Keyboard: another ace. The rhythm section is also all star material. You just play the cd and do the monkey dance !

Within the first 10 albums I had. A pure classic of 80's metal, it's Sabbath, Purple and Zeppelin moving forward in heavy metal way. Twin guitar attack, solid rhythm section and a great singer. With Maiden, Metallica, Metal Church, Dio, Accept and maybe a few more it was the classic heavy metal bands of that era and this album to me is really their masterpiece. I have listened to it a whole damn lot. There is not a single bad song on this.. It must have been 20 years since my last full spin, shame on me. Really excellent album.

On a side note: I saw them twice in the 80's plus Rob 2 more times solo and I must say I dont like him that much in concert. I don't like his gay pose , his high scream iiissshhh. Scary. Much better studio imho.

I have Priest...Live and it maybe does sound better. I don't really listen to it anymore. But to me it's just that Defenders Of The Faith was so big when I first got into music that it is unbeatable (for Priest). I find Rob's voice more tolerable studio and musicaly... shivers down my spine the whole way through

I got this pretty much within the first month it was out and I've listened to it everyday in the first few weeks for sure. An album that gives you punches in the face after ripping off your skin after molesting your soul with a baseball bat. Dime riffs and hooks and guitar playing overall is again, simply mindblowing. That does sound fucking Heavy. What a talented guy.

This album was my favourite Pantera record for a long time (well, till 2000 :p ). Pretty much all classics one after the other. It goes in a few different moods along the way but always stay fuckin heavy. Well that's obvious, it's fucking Pantera.

Did they ever play Shedding Skin live ? This has to be the most underrated Pantera song ever. I love this album

I discovered this band because a local rock radio station was playing Chop Suey,Toxicity and Aerials when Toxicity came out in 2001. I immediatelly loved that and manage to get the album. A masterpiece that will be on lower in my list.

For Mezmerized I can say that I really love it too even thought I don't listen to SOAD that much lately since the band pretty much broke up a few years ago. The announcement of a reunion and tour for 2011 really exite me and will probably make me listen to them a bit more. I saw them 4 times in concert and I must say that they always fucking rules.

This album is a perfect example of what SOAD is: heavy concrete riffage mixed with that twisted, realistic, contemporary, violent, spacy, protester, informative, moody, humouristic world that defines System Of A Down, a pure joy to listen to. They really let themselves go on that album and the result is amazing. What a talented band, I love them and this album is my 2 nd favourite from them

I got this the day it came out. And yes I was a disappointed, but not completely. It is a clear commercial attempt by my beloved Metallica but there are quite a few good songs on this thing. The problem here is that the general public outside of the metal world discovered Metallica with Enter Sandman, The Unforgiven and Nothing Else Matters. All of theses are excellent songs in my opinion but that did not reflect what Metallica was really for us who followed them since the beginning. If any new bands had brought out this album everybody would be worshiping it to death, that it is clear to me. It is just that the break is too big with regard to their previous thrash efforts of the first 4 albums. This album would have had to be only a minor album that was fast forgotten and not that heavily played live. Also a normal one year tour to support it would have been perfect.

But no, it was all the opposite and that album was played non-stop everywhere for 4-5 years, they made 3-4 World tour for it and got lost in money, succes and fame… After a few years I was so fed up of hearing these songs that I started to dislike them.

Then it was 15 years of bad decisions, bad albums, bad live playing (despise everybody who still praises them, you had to see them before 1991 to really know what was Metallica live). They are not angry anymore, Jayms sound gay , the playing is sloopy, the whole thing is just wrong. I know most of you will dissagree with me but this is trully how I feel about them now.

But deny the fact that this album was major for me would be a lie. The listening I did of it this afternoon was very pleasant, there was some dust on the cover I can tell you that, but this is a really good album.


Ok time to put it away for another 15 years…

I like this album a lot but I feel like they lean on it way too much; I think you are spot on that they ruined it by doing the whole 4 years of touring; granted some of their best shows came from that era (Moscow 91, San Diego 92, etc.)

Basically I wish they would do this; Drop Sandman, NEM, Sad but true and drop them forever and replace them in a rotating system with: God that Failed, Roam, Wolf and man, Struggle and a little unforgiven. As much as I do groove along to the black album staples at the 4 times I have seen them, I will not shed one tear if they don't play 'em; I think it is horseshit that people think that if Sandman, or NEM isn't played at a show the fans will be sad...maybe the brand new ones but not me sir

Thanks for letting me rant

Almost every song on this sound somewhat tribal or has a tribal vibe if you will. Just like Amon Amarth fucking sound viking and Powerslave sound Egyptian. The song Ratamahatta (my favourite) is sang half and half in english and this tribe dialect by a tribe member. As for lyrics they just drawed a pot leaf in the booklet. That says it all.

Dude this thread is sick. I just stumbles upon it today, and I am enjoying it. I'll comment on the Black Album thing. I'm only 20, but I've been listening to Metallica for about 10 years. They have always been my favorite band and probably always will. I have to credit the Black Album for getting me into Metallica. When I was 10, I was a commercial on TV for a popular radio station in Chicago and they played Enter Sandman and I fell in love with the song instantly. I had my dad buy me the album the next day, and I loved it. I went to my uncle's house the next month and asked him if I could borrow one of his Metallica cd's, and he gave me Justice. This opened me up to the 80's Metallica. I knew this band would be my all time favorite as soon as I heard the first riff off of Blackened.

I do see what you're saying about the Black Album being overplayed when it came out. It's a shame they didn't make at least one more album like the first 4.

Another one that I got really early in my young metalhead career that I don't listen to anymore because of the fact that Motley Crue is now a joke. They look gay, their music sucks for the most part and really, why do they still exist ? ... but in 1983-84 this album was the 8 th wonder of the world (it still is imho). It's groovy, the sound is great and the riffage on this is not far from your typical thrash metal band but downshifted in terms of speed. It's not Kreator we all aggree on this but the aggression is palpable and really the mood and guitar work is really there.

I saw them in '85 for Theater Of Pain and I had to force myself to go since I hated the album so much. But the thoughts of hearing the songs of the first 2albums made me go. I was right, they were great,plus seiing the drum solo and Heather Locklear on the soundboard made me had a great night. After that it was done. Finish. I quit following them. So they suck now and I hate them, but I still stand by this album, throw me rocks if you want.

There are a shit ton of punk albums in there. It's mission statement is: "The Decibel Hall of Fame provides the definitive stores behind the making of extreme music's most important albums."

I don't actually think Shout At The Devil should be in there, but it's marginally more in the spirit of "true metal" than fucking Roots ever was.

I don’t know how you guys feel about this band but in that style of pop-rock, they were the fucking best. Did they ever release a live album ? If so I would need that. I have so many great memories of weekends away at the cottage with planty of beer and nice girls willing to party, and this album was an instant bomb amongst everybody, those were great times…better than Foreigner and Loverboy, the 2 other pop rock bands that I like, speaking of mainstream bands (in another thread) well this doesn't get any better than this…

This was my first Sepultura album, I didn't know much about this band prior to this but I though the cover was kind of cool.It turned out to be the kind of discovery that happens once in a blue moon where I was completly blown away right from the first listen. A fucking brutal record mixed with sounds, voices and instruments of some tribe somewhere in the middle of the jungle. Don’t get me wrong this is some serious violent and angry music but the mood to me is just too cool. It doesn’t reflect the thrashy Sepultura of their previous work which I also praise but the original and exotic side of this album make me really go apeshit over it. Almost every song on this sound somewhat tribal or has a tribal vibe if you will. Just like Amon Amarth fucking sound viking and Powerslave sound Egyptian. The song Ratamahatta (my favourite) is sang half and half in english and this tribe dialect by a tribe member. As for lyrics they just drawed a pot leaf in the booklet. That says it all. As time passed by this album became a real classic Sepultura album for me with such killers songs as Roots Bloody Roots, Spit, Cut-Throath and really 70 % of the album.

But Countdown oooooouuuu that's really a great album. A never ending flow of amazing riffs, shreds, solos and to the bones metal grooves. With 2 exception; Skin O My Teeth and Sweating Bullets, issssshhh. To me they are like Sun & Steel and Quest For Fire. I hate those 2 songs, and he always fucking play them live.

mmm the track list is not that great since Escape and Frontiers weren't out yet, but an interesting fact that I found on wiki about it: This album was recorded during the bands "Departure" tour in 1980. Tracks 1-4 were taken from a performance recorded at The Forum in Montreal, Quebec, Canada on August 8, 1980. Beiing from Montreal I find that pretty cool since I've seen tons of shows at the old forum

Like I said before, Pearl Jam were big for me in the 90's and I love everything they did in that decade, especially the first 3 albums. This one (which was supposed to be called 5 Against 1) was also a trully masterpiece of the genre. The punk\groove\metal is there with cut like Go,Animal and Rearviewmirror (a personnal favourite, what a groove !). They even went pop with Daughter which was not half bad. But it's still the anger that Vedder delivers with his sublime vovals that gives me shivers down the spine all the way through. It's deep and sometimes magical like on Indifference where he really seems to sang out his guts and I am almost in transe hearing that. Grandiose album.

Iron Maiden, Metallica, Accept, Dio … those were my bands at the begining when I got into music. I saw Dio in ’85 at the old forum for Sacred Heart and that night was pure magic. Back then Dio had a top notch major arena production, Giant Cristal ball & dragon, swords , lazers, a Dio concert was a trully amazing experience. He did a few songs of Last In Line of course, a masterpiece. From the opening heavy riffs of We Rock throught the magical ‘’We Are Coming… HOOOOOOOME !!!’’ of the title track, the aptly title I Speed At Night, the groovy One Night In The City, the haunting Evil Eyes, the epic Egypt and all the rest of them to complete the adventure. This album is non stop classics from start to finish. His voice, like always is so powerfull and the guitar playing of Vivian, is just perfect. I don’t know what happened between the 2 of them that led Vivian to leave and join Def Leppard but I thought that was just wrong. He was never truly replace imho....Anyway, when Dio was in the house you knew you were in for a threat. The first 3 solo effort by Dio to me are all magic ands this one is just the lesser good of the 3. Still a masterpiece.

Catching up: Couldn't possibly agree with you more about VS. and Eddie's vocals on Indifference. One of the best vocal tracks ever laid down.

The night Kurt Cobain killed himself (allegedly) Pearl Jam played a show here. Word was they were going to cancel but instead they played almost 3 hours and even though Eddie was wrecked he delivered one of the best vocal performances I've ever seen in my life. I'll never forget Release and Indifference from that night. Definitely the only time I felt those kinds of emotions at a live show.

Last in Line is interesting to me. Loved that album back in the day but not sure if it stands the test of time. Some of the songs really sounded cheesy to me and some of the lyrics were actually comical in retrospect. Holy Diver is timeless and I expected this album to be also and it's just wasn't for me. It still had it place back in the day but Metal Heart as an example really stood the test of time more than this one.

Again another fucking brillant album for the time. The beginning of War Pigs with the air raid siren is chilling and gives you an idea of what you’re gonna experience next: a massacre !! I heard Bill said in an interview that the first 3 Sabbath albums are like one big unit. The songs were coming from nowhere, they just had to get together the 4 of them, light up a joint, and that was it. Riffs, lyrics, groove everything was getting out by itself. That beiing said, this album is the perfect follow up to the self title and the perfect predecessor to the masterpiece that would come after. Just look at the title of those songs and try to come up with something negative to say… Impossible. And I think that the title track is really the lesser good song of the album just to give you an idea of the rest…

I wasn't sure if this album deserved it's place on my list, after all these songs are 25 years old and I listened to them thousands of times before on other albums. Plus this is only 2 years old, has it changed my life this much ? answer: yes, and here's why...

First of all the memories I have of this tour which I saw 5 concerts are amazing. On the soundboard rail screaming at Rod at IZOD, in heaven in Toronto, on stage during HCW in Holmdel :drool: the soccer match during Powerslave at MSG and the Heavy MTL fest with my kids on my shoulders with their devilfing in the air screaming the words along with Brucey... aaahhh it was so great

Also I am on 2 of those songs Rime in IZOD and Hallowed in Toronto, how cool is that, to be on a fucking Iron Maiden album. Also since this album came out I find myself choosing deliberately to listen to the songs on it in my infamous virtual shows, I like how it sounds so rich and aggressive.They wanted to re visit the Live After Death era and I must say it's really well done. Doesn't sound or look Spinal Tapish it's really relevent still 25 years after the first one.

Also and foremost , the dvd version. My 2 nd best Maiden footage after RIR. The quality of the image is top notch, it doesn't change frame too quickly like Steve tends to do on the editing. They fucking rock like crazy on it. The fact that we see the arrival of the plane before the songs is really cool and really seiing Davey scratching is guitar like only he can do, Adrian with his faces during his solos, Steve headbanging like a 20 years old kid all the way through. Nicko banging those skins like there's no tommorow and Janick... well.. Jannick is Jannick...

These guys are gods, litterally and their music is timeless. This albums shows them 25 years after their supposed peak and they are at least as good as before if not better.

54 th place for an album that is so young. Yes !

I can imagine this being similar to if 25 years down the line if trivium did an ascendancy tour or Mastodon bringing back Crack The Skye or Leviathan back live. Seeing bands that were enormously influential to my teenage years bring back the material from those years for a specific tour would be awesome. Its nowhere near the same as Maiden are, and will always be, on their own plateau, but I can see why this is so influential to you! :D

I discovered Blaze solo with that album, I guess I wasn’t too much interested when his first 2 studio came out. But at one point I needed to check him out. Well I found myself on my arse after hearing that album ! I mean WOW ! It looked like he finnaly found his place, his thing: Guitars are fucking heavy, the music is alive, it mooves, it fucking rocks ! His voice is also perfect for the music. He tries to be over the music instead of screaming like he did live with Maiden. I really love it, there are not a lot of bad songs on this. I don’t know who is responsible for the musical arrangement of the songs but damn, it’s good. It scraches your nervous system beautifully. Most of the songs are really really fucking good. And I love his bastardasation of Dazed & Confuzed…

Too bad he doesn’t tour in N.A. I would go see him in a heartbeat. He is somewhat unlucky though, after his ‘departure’ from Maiden, he did those 2 great studio albums and then he kept loosing his bandmembers one after the other. And the albums that came after this (B&B and MWWND) are excellent. Anyway great live album that I enjoyed a lot…

A pure masterpiece made from pure genious. They were the best to explore the human body, mind and soul. Bless you boys. A real perfect album to be in contact with yourself, you can really stop the time and just fucking be while listening to this. I cannot explain every song in detail, each to his own on this album. I guess it's the way to see it. You can get whatever you need to made you feel good and just fly. The songs are deep and really profond maybe with the exception of 'Money' my least favourite track on it. Again, one of the many masterpiece by this legendary band...

I saw Roger 2 times doing it live (much better show than The Wall imho)

Track Listing


1. Into The Lungs Of Hell
2. Set The World Afire
3. Anarchy In The U.K.
4. Mary Jane
5. 502
6. In My Darkest Hour
7. Liar
8. Hook In Mouth


I got this the day it came out since, like I said I was following them in the begining, even though I didn't particuly like Dave.

A flawless album, that sounds dirty, evil and angry, just the way I like it. I always loved this album, of course just for the grandiose Darrkest Hour it would almost deserves it's place on my list but everything else on it is amazing. The opening of ITLOH\STWA is a wonderfull one-two punch right in the face. The a great cover that fits perfectly the mood of the album with Anarchy In The U.K.. After that is probably the one of their most underrated song (but it doesn't matter, I wanna keep it for myself) with Mary Jane, I love that song deeply. Then you've got the real shredders\fuck off & die attitude songs 502 and Liar. Closing the album with the rebel Hook In Mouth as a big fuck you to the P.M.R.C. movement that tried to establish themselves back in the day as the ''keeper of the lyrical content of metal albums'' is a perfect way to do it. Played with absolute brillance, power, aggression and emotion this albums remains my 2 nd favourite offering by the Dave Mustaine band. Most of all it's really the vibe of the whole thing that I find particulary good. I saw that show on January 8, 1988 with Savatage as a support and Dio headlining (for Dream Evil) and I still remember that concert as beiing awesome.

I don’t know how you guys feel about this band but in that style of pop-rock, they were the fucking best. Did they ever release a live album ? If so I would need that. I have so many great memories of weekends away at the cottage with planty of beer and nice girls willing to party, and this album was an instant bomb amongst everybody, those were great times…better than Foreigner and Loverboy, the 2 other pop rock bands that I like, speaking of mainstream bands (in another thread) well this doesn't get any better than this…

Cheers !

In addition to Captured, recorded in 1980, which Greg Rollie's last CD with the band... they released a Greatest Hits Live CD in 1998 and an entire concert from 1981's Escape tour in Houston as a CD and DVD/CD.

Greg's departure left the band as more of a Steely Dan-like session group. It's a shame Steve Perry drove the band into Pop-Rock, like Peter Cetera did with Chicago. In saying that, Escape is a great, great CD, and is tied with Infinity for my 1st favorite Journey album.

Keep up the great work... looking forward to the rest of the list.

A best of of the first 15 years of one of the most succesfull Canadian rock act here is what you have. 15 years to resume. I the guys were fucking machines : 13 studio albums and 3 lives in 15 years, isn't that amazing: :

Rush (1974)
Fly By Night (1975)
Caress Of Steel (1975)
2112 (1976)
All The World’s A Stage (live album) (1976)
A Farewell To Kings (1977)
Hemispheres (1978)
Permanent Waves (1980)
Moving Pictures (1981)
Exit…Stage Left (live album) (1981)
Signals (1982)
Grace Under Pressure (1984)
Power Windows (1985)
Hold Your Fire (1987)
A Show Of Hands (live album)(1989)
Presto (1989)



This compilation : ‘’Chronicles’’ is an overlooked at all that, 2-3 songs per album placed in chronological order to fully illustrate the band's evolution throughout the years. From the bluesy beginning to an hard rock évolution more complex and progressive which reflect music of that time. Then a pretty drastic change to a more radio orriented band in the 80's with a certain succes. Less progressive though but just as groovy & good to me.

I was never a big fan of theirs, maybe not enough metal, lame excuse cause they sure write some fucking great songs and sometimes it's not that far from heavy metal. The 3 amigos are all amazing musicians, Neil Peart beiing often mentionned as one of the best of his profession. The instumental parts in the songs are often grandiose, a real threat to ear. A fucking great album by an amazing band that I couldn't live without, but on the other hand I don't feel I need more. This album is all I need when I want to have my Rush fix.

I could have gone to see them for free in Québec city last year (the same festival Maiden was playing) but 6 Maiden shows in 10 days fried me up for good. Too bad I really would like to see them once in my life and last year in Québec would have been perfect.

I'm not gonna try to convert the majority of people in here that thinks that everything that came after Seasons is shit. It's your opinions but sometimes I think it became somewhat cool to say that here on Metalsetlist...anyway, moving on..

I for one thinks that this is the most original album Slayer has ever made. It not following their usual paterns. It's completely original and even though you have your speed fest with cuts such as Unit 731, Psychopathy Red and Hate Worldwide (all amazing btw) for me it's more the moody almost atmospheric sickness of Beauty Through Order, Human Strain or the amazing Playing With Dolls that give me chills down the spine. Those songs have no precedent in Slayer's catalogue. It's really fresh and comes from uncharted territories for them. Brillant !!! Totally fucking brillant.

The title track is also fucking epic and already in my top 25 Slayer songs. And I also love Americon which seems to be strait out of Venom's catalogue. Anyway I have 7 songs that I give 10 out of 10 on this beauty - all but Snuff (8.5), Public Display Of Dismemberment (8), Human Strain (9) and Not Of This God (8) . A fucking masterpiece to me

I think WPB is a great effort by them, I think it overall is much stronger than Christ Illusion or God Hates Us All; I am with you in that while I enjoy the faster tharshy songs, the slow creepy ones like Beauty or Human are the ones that really drive the album

BTW I am one of the people who think they did good work after Seasons; is that work as strong as SNM to Seasons? No, but it wasn't shit either. The only album I have trouble with is Diabolus in Muisca

Probably the most lyricly dark album that I have. The dispair that drugs, more specificly heroin can have on Jerry and even more on Layne is shown here on at least 85 % of the songs. It made this album almost a concept album in that sense. A really depressive album that show what’s this shit does on humans. Tormented by the life they lead, they bring us with them in the dirty alleys where deallers and junkies each fight for what little they have as a life. It’s ugly.Layne Staley like quite a few grunge singers is really fucking good delivering those words, his voice is just amazing.Musicaly it is often melancholic, (groove, riffs, solos) to put even more the emphasis on the fucking dispair they live. A pure fucking masterpiece of the genre that really gives the listener a true feel of all the shit you live when you’re in that kind of life. A true masterpiece to me.

Unfortunatelly Layne didn’t made it through and died of an overdose in 2002

I discovered this in 2002 after a Dio show where I met someone who was going crazy about this album told me that I should buy it. I did and at first and for quite some time I thought that I had dicovered the 8 th wonder of the world…

As timed passed by I reallised it wasn't but this heavy Maiden influence band weren't bad at all. I always really enjoy that album. A good dose of triple picking overided with great melodies. Songs are a good mix of fast thrashy ones, some more mid tempo a few slower ones also. A great album which I feel I don't really need more from them (well maybe Horror Show too). I stop following them a bit though cause imho the last few albums are not that good and the fact that the lineup always changes got to me. The Prophecy-Birth Of The Wicked-The Coming Curse trilogy is still grandiose everytime I listen to it.

I paid 55 $ for this album at the time and I still don't reggret it today so I guess that's good



Note : I didn't listen to the entire thing last night like I usually do, IE have a tendency to be a bit repetitive so I did a litte virtual show with this album, songs in bold are the one that I played. I had a blast :blaze:

I won't spend too much time describing this Québécois band of the 70's / 80's to you. Musically it's kind of a mix between Led Zeppelin, Supertramp and CCR. with one of the most unique and beautifull voices to ever come out of the province of Québec with Gerry Boulet (R.I.P.). I used to love them and this albumn is their Number Of The Beast. They did a few english albums but it never really worked in english for them.

An album were they were still pure, they all had long hair, they were dirty, they were drinking all day and headbanging all night or vice versa or often both at the same time. They were fucking there for the good reasons. They wanted to rule the world with that kind of brand new style of heavy metal. No fucking compromise ! This album with that garage kinda production sounded and still sound just perfect to me. There is not a band that came that close to the mighty Maiden in my heart then Metallica with those first few years (except of Slayer now, since 5 years I'm just crazy about them)

This would be in my Top 10, maybe 5. Every single song is great and it's the perfect mix of fast, faster and slowish with great lyrics. Add the most common cd version with Am I evil? and Blitzkrieg and it's that much better.

As much as I like Pantera, RTS never grabbed me. It's by far my least favorite of their post-glam cd's and I never listen to it. On the other hand I threw Trendkill in last week and was floored. I mean, FLOORED! Once again the mix of speeds makes this cd a masterpiece. The exact thing RTS didn't have for me. All the songs except Death Rattle I think just plod along to me. To each his own though. As heavy as Suicide Note Part 2 is hearing SN part 1 leading into makes it world crashing down heavy to me.

I'll tell you a little secret. I don't even have Great Southern Trendkill because of the fact that I really dislike the 3 songs that are on the live 101% proof thingy. But a lot of people tell me the same thing as you, maybe I'll buy it soon ...:p

I can't possibly recommend it more highly. If someone asked me 2 weeks ago what the 3 best songs on Trendkill were I couldn't even give them an answer out of ignorance. Now I'm not sure I can answer the same question because I love 9 of the 11 songs and couldn't believe how great they were after not hearing them for 10+ years. Even Drag the Waters which is like the 5 Minutes Alone of Trendkill sounded fresh and had me singing along.

It's hard to hear Suicide Note Part 2 like on 101 Proof without the part 1 intro. It just doesn't work. Last time I saw them live they opened with part 1 over the PA then exploded into part 2 to start the show. I remember going absolutely apeshit at that moment. Probably the best opening to any concert since Maiden did Churchill's speech into Aces High...

The songs Floods and the title track are incredible and 10's and 13 Steps are better than I ever remember. My 2nd fav Pantera album behind Vulgar...

I can't possibly recommend it more highly. If someone asked me 2 weeks ago what the 3 best songs on Trendkill were I couldn't even give them an answer out of ignorance. Now I'm not sure I can answer the same question because I love 9 of the 11 songs and couldn't believe how great they were after not hearing them for 10+ years. Even Drag the Waters which is like the 5 Minutes Alone of Trendkill sounded fresh and had me singing along.

It's hard to hear Suicide Note Part 2 like on 101 Proof without the part 1 intro. It just doesn't work. Last time I saw them live they opened with part 1 over the PA then exploded into part 2 to start the show. I remember going absolutely apeshit at that moment. Probably the best opening to any concert since Maiden did Churchill's speech into Aces High...

The songs Floods and the title track are incredible and 10's and 13 Steps are better than I ever remember. My 2nd fav Pantera album behind Vulgar...


great, you convinced me, I'm buy it soon !


thanks !

I think the 101 Proof version of Suicide Note Part 2 is the definitive version of that song.:eyes:

I agree Phil sings the living shit out of it but I still think the setup makes it incredible. This isn't the best example but I think you get my point when the curtain drops...

A fucking great discovery that I made here. Maybe a few months after it came out. I had heard Killing In The Name in this bar & I remember I went nuts for it. Great heavy riffs, epic grooves. Really engaged lyrics. The mix of metal and rap. If you would have even suggested it to me before this album I would have probably laughted at you. But I have always like different stuff, fresh shit, new shit, even experimentation. Rage Against The Machine with that album were fucking revolutionnary. A music that gives you the urge to jump around screaming. I was freaking out over them and especially this album back then and after hearing it now I must say it still slays big time. 10 fucking masterpieces every song is big. Maybe I should have placed it lower in my ranking, I’ll think of it…

I saw Rage Against the Machine in 2007. It was easily the most brutal and most violent fucking concert I had ever attended. Riots left and right, cops all over the place macing and arresting people, fights breaking out left and right, Fire pits all over the fuckin' place, Fire being set off EVERYWHERE AND I LITERALLY MEAN EVERYWHERE!!....all of this was happening while two rednecks with no shirt on were fighting on top of me....while I was on top of a security guard....who was on top of a barricade fence(which was originally suppose to hold the people from the balcony level from getting into the main pit floor level)....which was also on top of another security guard....I literally had to crawl my way out to find an area with no fights and fire.....which took me awhile considering that there was fights and fire ALL OVER THE FUCKING VENUE......it felt like I was in World War III...

Easily the most brutal most violent fucking concert I have ever attended. More brutal than anything deathmetal/Deathcore/what ever fucking sub genre name you wanna call it. And yes this concert was more brutal than any Slayer show.

And yes, they sounded amazing. powermaiden, I urge you to go see them the next time they're around. They still put on a fucking show.:rocker:

If there is one thing in my concert days that I'll never forget...it was seeing Rage Against the Machine during the summer of 07' and witnessing that insane and yet very brutal Massacre that took place at the San Bernadino Glen Hellen Pavillion Amphitheater.....

The show to see on dvd ! Of course the cd version is beyond great but for this little review I'll speak more of the dvd version.

Maiden always play 110% with the exeption of the ‘big shows’, where they give 150 %. The passion, the fury, the intensity here is incredible. 20 years after their debut album they give their biggest headline show at the Rock In Rio festival to a crowd of 250,000 crazy Maiden fan. The guys are so foccused and hungry on this it’s unbelievable. Bruce and Steve can finally galop at their will, from one side to the other of this massive stage, the 3 amigos are scorchy like hell and Nicko slays everything on his path. Everybody on this is right on ! Just fucking watch the butchery that Ghost Of The Navigator is, there must have been some death in the crowd, too fucking good. Jan’ solo on Blood B. Adrian with his funny faces all the way through, Steve facing the drumkit & headbanging like a maniac during SOTC. The crowd also is fucking loud and into it. The Trooper where the 4 axemen stand in front all guns blazing. Bruce when he embarks on the moving camera during FOTD. Eddie !! There are so many great moments on this thing it’s not even funny. The sound is amazing, the image quality is perfect. The edit is also great. My favourite Maiden dvd and my favourite version of all the BNW songs, the 2 Blaze era songs and FOTD.

Unbelievable first live album after the reunion

I probably would have rated it 3 or 4 and I would have been wrong. As much of a revelation I had listening to Trendkill, Far Beyond Driven was the total opposite. I'm just tired of 5 Minutes Alone and I'm Broken so after the 1st 2 great songs I didn't hear another song that grabbed me until Throes of Rejection and even that wasn't as great as I once thought it was.

I'll be curious what Powermaiden thinks after a few spins.

A fucking new king of metal was born with that album, aggressive and fast yeah but really scary too. In the ‘80’s they were really scary, I didn’t want to listen to them , they were scaring me too much… A hell a first offering for those new young metalheads. They really want to skin you to death with those lyrics and that aggressive music, it’s clear to me. The Slayer trademark that would be theirs for their entire career is already there in those first 10 songs, All masterpieces, without compromise, violent, fast, precise, catchy, shreddy, epic, after earing that album you have to fucking get back on your feet cause of the beat up you’ve just endured. The garage sounding production just like Kill ‘em All is really cool to me. Just a tiny better than KEA btw imho, but not by much. I discovered Slayer by earing Black Magic and I can’t wait for them to play it live for me one day. My neck will have to survive it…

Yes and YES!

A funny story only someone from my generation can relate to. I bought Reign in Blood 1st, then Haunting the Chapel, then Live Undead, then Hell Awaits and Show No Mercy. Reign took a long while to sink in but once it did the "slayer curve" on the others was quick and efficient. I LOVED SNM the 1st time I heard it and spent many nights trying to figure out the lyrics and headbanging like a nut.

I remember being in Record and Tape Traders which sold used albums and seeing a beat up copy of SNM. For some reason I was compelled to look inside and when I saw a lyric sheet I literally felt like I won the lottery. I bought that beat up version for $6.99 just for the lyric sheet and was obsessed with SNM for months after that. I would hit record stores all over looking for a Hell Awaits used copy that had a lyric sheet and actually found one after months of searching. After that it was Death - Scream Bloody Gore which I eventually found also.

That's my we used to have to walk uphill in a snow-storm with no shoes story... hahaha

I saw this show in Montreal on July 1 st 1999 and I was completely blow away by it. This was my first time seiing Roger and I absolutely loved everything that he played that night. (That summer was also the Maiden & Sabbath reunion, and they both hit Montreal's Molson center, talk about a great summer)

All the best of Pink Floyd and his solo stuff (which nobody really cares, we want Floyd !!) Well he played pretty much all my favourite maybe with the exception of Hey You and Sheep but we can’t have everything. All the Floyd songs are as good if not better than the originals imho. I remember when he fucking started Dogs I couldn’t believe it ! Dogs !!! Also the back up vocals girls are amazing and the fact that one of them sings David’s part in Mother (the part of the mom) imho is so brillant. My favourite version of Mother ever. Great, great live cd and dvd, better than any live Pink Floyd album made after 1980. I saw Roger 3 more times after this show and I sure hope to see him again…

I got this not long after it came out and I was immediatly hooked. Thrash metal played dirty that seems to get out of a dark alley, played by long haired bums with leather jackets. There is some kind of edge on that album that I always loved. I cannot put my finger on it exactly but there is definately something that apeals me. This album was really a landmark album for me went I was young so that explains it's place on my ranking. I much enjoy a lot more Show No Mercy for example but since I got into Slayer a lot later in my life, Peace Sells deserves it's place. All great song that we would like to hear live instead of the same 2 that the Dave Mustaine band always play...

Amazing album still today

I got this not long after it came out and I was immediatly hooked. Thrash metal played dirty that seems to get out of a dark alley, played by long haired bums with leather jackets. There is some kind of edge on that album that I always loved. I cannot put my finger on it exactly but there is definately something that apeals me. This album was really a landmark album for me went I was young so that explains it's place on my ranking. I much enjoy a lot more Show No Mercy for example but since I got into Slayer a lot later in my life, Peace Sells deserves it's place. All great song that we would like to hear live instead of the same 2 that the Dave Mustaine band always play...

Amazing album still today

Another great choice a great piece of work from back to front; as you may know Megadeth is planning on doing a full album tour late 2011; if it comes near me I am going not a experience to miss

The weakest song off of Show No Mercy and I'd still gladly take it over fucking Temptation (as well as about 50% of their catalog). Is my memory mistaken or is this higher than Reign In Blood? (because if it is then bravo).

No and No. Tormentor and Reign is Top 5 of all time. Embrace the speed Broski... Slayers faster songs are incredible. Slayer's slower songs tend to get old and boring after years fo listening. Thrash and speed never get old...

Tormentor? That's the second best song on SNM, I do believe you mean Temptation (which isn't even that fast).

Not a fan of Temptation but Tormentor is def my least favorite song off SNM. I used to like it but it just plods along and the lyrics are kinds cheesy. Are you afraid of the night? Not as bad as Fear of the Dark but an ugly stepsister nonetheless. hahaha

To each his own but that song does nothing for me, especially live. I have several versions of The Final Command that SLAY live.

Interesting. No album changed my life, my musical taste or opened me up to new music more than Reign in Blood. Hell I used to skip over Fight Fire With Fire because it was too fast. Funny how things change...

:lame: Ride The Lightning was probably my first ever thrash album (also of note that the only two bands I had heard by this time were Sabbath and Ozzy) and I thought Fight Fire With Fire was the greatest thing ever.

Also I didn't realize your first no was to Final Command being my least favorite song off of SNM. Least favorite are the words to note here. I still think it's a great song and definitely one of Slayer's better faster moments.

Yeah that album jumped a huge threshold for me also. I was all Maiden, Priest, Scorpions, Triumph, AC/DC, Dio then I heard Ride the Lightning on the way to see Metallica/Wasp/Armored Saint live and it changed everything.

Peace Sells came soon after then Reign in Blood. Those 3 would be Top 10 for me along with some classic gems. I'm very curious how your Top 10 looks and how many classics made the cut.

I already told you that Dio was one of my favourite artist when I first got into metal and that love lasted a really long time. This is imho his best album and almost everytime of the 8 times that I saw him, he always seem to play the 4 standard setlist songs that are on this (Stand-Up\Holy D\Don’t Talk & Rainbow) but all the other songs on it are just as good. Everything you need to know about Dio is there, no need to search elsewhere, classic Dio ! What a voice ! The Voice Of Metal…

a great album indeed...I am sad that they haven't really played off it expect Die by the sword, and more recently Black Magic and Anti-Christ; I would think half that album hasn't been played since 84 or 85!

They played Fight Till Death in '03-'04, and Show No Mercy in '05 + '07. I agree, they should play more from this album :light:

Fight Till Death sounded f'in great. SNM sounded OK. Tom has a bit of a tough time w/ the fast lyrics. Not complaining, just saying.

43. We all had to get fake ID's to get into the show. All of us made it except 1 guy who was using an out of state id you used to order out of magazines like Circus and Hit Parader. hahaha

I really respect your list and it makes me wonder what albums got me to where I am musically also. The 1st album I ever owned was Alice Cooper - Love it to Death then Deep Purple - Machine Head. Then Kiss Alive changed everything. My 1st concert was Rush on Caress of Steel opening for Kiss. Wasn't impressed with Rush until the last 2 songs In The End and Working Man. I'll never forget hearing the opening riff to Working Man with the aroma of weed and (didn't know it at the time) PCP in the air. Still 2 of my 5 favorite Rush songs.

I had 3 older brothers. Oldest was into Beatles/Stones, 2nd was into Yes/Kansas/Genesis/King Crimson and closest to me was into Sabbath/AC/DC/Priest/Maiden. I was constantly exposed to great music and had access to albums that I still listen to today.

My biggest regret was always having access to drum kits and never getting good at playing. Damn Atari... hahaha

Nice story :metal: when that show came to Montreal (Wasp\Metallica\Armored Saint) they did 2 nights in an 18 and up venue, that's probably why I didn't go after all hehehe. I have the review of the show here in a local newspaper that said that W.A.S.P. had to cut their set of the first night short cause people were booing them and throwing things at them. People were there for Metallica and only the fact that WASP had sold more albums than Metallica back then justified the fact that they were headlining. I was perceived has an injustice

I got this around ’84-’85, one of my favourite album of that era. It didn’t last long though, 2-3 years, by the time I saw them with Anthrax and Black Sabbath in ’86 supporting their 2 nd full length album ‘’The Last Command’’ I was already moving on with other bands… I don’t even know if their stuff after that is good or not but nevertheless. I had to listen to these songs on youtube for this review cause I only have the casette and I didn’t wanted to go in my car where the only tape player available is. I knew I would love it but I was really impress, A fucking masterpiece still all those years after. How come I don't have this on cd is beyond me. I need to get this on cd. Classic metal with skillsaw blades ! hahaha I used to love that and It didn’t age one bit. All the songs on this are really great, awesome album. The Sleeping In The Fire solo is still one of my favourite solo of all time…

Perfect timing is right. Here's the link to my retro-review of the show.

http://www.metalsetlists.com/showthread.php?t=11425&highlight=metallica+wasp

We all thought WASP was headining too even though the ticket said Metallica Wasp and Armored Saint. I'm wondering if them being boo'd at other shows was the reason we got Metallica headlining. I'll tell ya, people here knew Wasp and were singing along and going nuts. I didn't know what to expect but what I got was one of the most incredible times I've ever had at a show.

I personally loved Wasp, Fuck like a Beast and The Last Command. I think I may have even liked The Last Command more but if I were to make a Greatest Wasp songs cd 85-90% of that cd would come from the these albums.

The more I listen to the first WASP album, the more I realize it holds up better than Headless Children. But the weird thing about WASP headlining that show is they only had that one album, so how did they play longer than 40 minutes?

Actually it's a beautiful song. Plus I think you need to realize the setlist from that tour. They opened with Bastille Day, In The Mood & Lakeside Park. Not exactly songs to grab the attention of a 10 year old kid. I think Anthem was next then Fly By Night was the 1st song I actually liked and probably set up In The End perfectly. I remember those simplistic chords sounding so amazing to my ears. That riff was so loud, clean and powerful. That's still one of my favorite Rush riffs and I'm sure seeing it live in that capacity played a role in that.

I know we're all different but a song like Tom Sawyer wouldn't be in my Top 30 Rush songs. It's ok, just never liked it that much other than the drumming. They lyrics are just 3rd grade jibberish to me. I'll take Vital Signs, Xanadu and Natural Science over the more popular Rush songs.

The last show of my favourite Québécois rock band filmed & recorded at the old Montreal forum back in 1985. They announced that it was their last show so they played like 40 songs \ 3 ½ hours. The track listing here is the one of the 4 track casette that I’ve listened endlessly when I was younger. They released the full concert on dvd a few years ago and I must admit it’s pure magic. So for my official listening I’ve put a few more songs than the casette,cut’s like ‘Ayoye’ , ‘Promenade Sur Mars’ & ‘Les Eaux Qui Dorment’ are cruelly missing so I played them. Most of you guys probably never heard of them, it’s bluesy\rock band sometimes borderline hard rock so if you want to check them out go see this (Ma Patrie Est A Terre): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vOvOhDFjXk it’s taken from that show. The singer who has this beautifull powerfull voice died of cancer in 1990 at the age of 44 or something.

Amazing offering by the prince of darkness here. His first solo album after getting kicked out of Black Sabbath. The young guitar player that he recruited certainly doesn’t hurt has this will turn out to be one of the most mentionned influencial albums of all metal guitar players. 8 instant & timeless classics were borns here & at least haft of them are still on the Ozzy setlist today 30 years after. That is without counting everytime Crazy Train is blasted in an hockey arena or football stadium to get things started ! I fell in love with that album the first time I’ve listened to it. From the controversial ‘Suicide Solution’ where a young teenager did commit suicide while listening to it, but what a fucking song ! to the superb Revelation Mother Earth where I almost wet my eyes everytime I listen to it, to his farewell song to mark his departure from Sabbath ‘Goodbye To Romance’ to the fast & in your face Steal Away The Night everything here is amazing. My favourite: Mr. Crowley what a chilling song ! Dee is really emotional to listen to since Randy passed away, what a tragic lost to the music that was. One of the best guitar playing album to be ever recorded. Major & important release here !

How long have I waited to see this thing coming out. How have I dreamed of this coming out. We had to wait a long 20 years before the best band ever finnally made this recording available.

I remember went I finnally got my Eddie’s Archives boxed set I went to buy myself some real english beer, New Castle Brown Ale as I wanted to really travel in time and fully appreciate the infamous Beast Over Hammersmith show.

Recorded on March 20 th 1982 at the famous Hammersmith Odeon in London, England this show was to support their new album of the time ‘’ The Number Of The Beast’’ and featured their new singer, a certain Mr. Bruce Dickinson. As the album were to be release 2 days latter (on march 22 nd) the audiance didn’t know any of the new stuff with the exeption of the new single ‘’Run To The Hills’’ that was already out.

They started the show with 2 old favourite Murders In The Rue Morgue and Wrathchild to get the crowd on their side but soon they would play 6 songs of the new album plus one b side of it and really this show demonstrate what would Iron Maiden become. In fact they were already there. Priest, Sabbath, Zeppelin you all have been surpassed already. These guys are for real. The musicianship on this thing is absolutetly mindblowing, they slayed totally. What a band ! and the new singer totally makes Paul Di’Anno sound like a ordinary guy. What a range, what a voice. Fucking incredible. They are so aggressive, powerfull, melodic and all in between it’s chilling to hear that. The new kings of metal are born. The best live band was born and this show is the proof of it.

Long Live Iron Maiden.
